About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Lakefront Pool Home with covered dock and Kayaks!

Situated on Lake Rousseau in Dunnellon is Paradise Found! Relax and enjoy all of the amenities this wonderful pool home and its location have to offer! An open and spacious floor plan awaits you including 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms that comfortably sleeps six. Enjoy a perfect cup of coffee from the Keurig coffee maker while you watch the sunrise in the large screened porch overlooking oak trees draped with spanish moss, views of the lake and wildlife that frequent the area, very calming and peaceful! When you’re not fishing, bird watching, or exploring the lake with the two kayaks, take a dip in the screen enclosed swimming pool! As your day of adventure comes to an end have a marshmallow roast around the fire pit while the sun sets.

Fishing is the name of the game on this lake and the covered boathouse has 2 slips waiting for your boat! There is Goldendale public boat ramp just a short run to our dock. Run your boat east up the Withlacoochee River to the sparkling clear waters of the Rainbow River where you can swim, tube, fish or tie your boat and dine at one of two waterfront restaurants, Swampy's or Blue Gator. If you boat west to Inglis Dam you can tie up and hike the nature trails. Minutes by car takes you to Dunnellon’s antique shops, boat rentals, diving, snorkeling, and tubing or kayaking adventures on the sparkling clear waters of the Rainbow River and Rainbow River State Park. Drive south 17 minutes to Crystal River and swim with manatees, dive for scallops, or visit the beach and go shelling or ocean fishing. You can also trailer your boat to the Gulf of Mexico for saltwater fishing. So much to see and do!

PEACEFUL PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Paradise Found on Lake Rousseau. The house was an inviting environment with the open layout and modern kitchen. The beds and the bathrooms allowed our party of seven plenty of room to have privacy. We spent several early mornings enjoying the large screened in porch or the peaceful covered dock for our breakfast. We have several photos of the birds, turtles and foliage for our memories.

One of the best adventures we all could participate in was the Rainbow River Tubing. We enjoyed this so much as a large family group that we actually did the tubing twice! The Rainbow River is so sparkling clear and it is a refreshing temperature on a hot day in July

We visited our elderly relatives in Ocala which was only a 20 minute drive. We loved that we were so close, but also away from the hustle and bustle of town at Lake Rousseau.

All of us, especially the grandkids, loved the pool that we had all to ourselves. It just made one more reason not to stay in a big resort hotel.

We had all the amenities of home that was necessary to make this an extremely easy, comforting and peaceful vacation. The check-in and check-out process was very smooth and accommodating. We recommend this property for your next vacation.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and well maintained. The view was spectacular. I spent my mornings on the dock with a cup of hot tea watching the wildlife. There was a playful otter and four foot long alligator that like to sun himself on a log. The pool was nice but being late March it was too cold to swim in. My only con would be the couches and queen bed. They were both uncomfortable.

Perfectly peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly what we were looking for-a low key place to unwind with friends. Our group consisted of four adults and two teenagers. The house had ample room; although, we spent most of our time outside!

The back porch and yard are very spacious-both larger than I expected. Our boys enjoyed throwing the football, tending the fire, and kayaking the lake. It was too cold for the pool, but it was clean and clear-ready to enjoy during warmer months. The trees are amazing! Lots of shade. Plenty of chairs are available along with comfy hammocks. We also brought our cornhole boards-definitely room for that too.

We kayaked Rainbow River the day before we arrived and would recommend that experience.

Neighbors are close by, but no issues with us outside all day/evening.

A good spot if you want to slow down and enjoy some R&R.

Wonderful home and a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The home was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed for our family of 6 to enjoy our vacation. The boys used the kayaks daily for fishing and we all enjoyed smores by the firepit at night. Great home and great owners! Thanks
